NRCS EQIP Application Webinar

This event has ended


A $1 million funding pool is available to MAGSA landowners every year for the next 4 years through USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service’s (NRCS) Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) WaterSMART Initiative.

Through the initiative, NRCS provides eligible EQIP applicants with the additional resources and tools needed to manage soil moisture, improve irrigation water use efficiency in crop and pasture lands, and protect irrigation water sources from depletion. This may include water delivery automation and monitoring, irrigation water management and conveyance, sprinkler irrigation systems, and more. MAGSA strongly encourages applicants to use this opportunity to fund their well flow meters and telemetry!

This funding pool is set aside for MAGSA landowners only! Those who are eligible to receive funds must meet NRCS EQIP eligibility requirements. To be eligible, an applicant must own or lease and manage their land, and have an average gross income of $900,000 or less. Read more here.


This webinar is for MAGSA landowners and operators who are interested in applying for a share of this funding.

Attendees can expect to leave this event with:

  1. A clear understanding of the EQIP application process, including how to enroll in the Farm Service Agency (a critical first step!).
  2. Connections to local NRCS field office staff.
  3. Confidence to complete the application process.
